Dick is a long time guitar player and utilizes “Roland Ready” equipment on the job. He has also occasionally been spotted playing keyboard and wind controller.

Dick has also held many positions in the field of electronics over the years, having been employed variously in audio, cable TV, medical electronics, and industrial electronics, filling positions as varied as circuit designer (from dc to UHF), test engineer, software designer, production engineer, tech support engineer, technical writer, and test manager. Yes, he still has a day job in audio.

Lately he has been contemplating how his combination of experience in music and technology can be applied to the world of computer synthesis. To that end he has recently revamped his SyntheSpider Technology website with a mind toward seeing what he might be able to accomplish.
